Contact form 7 not working with Godaddy hosting (7 posts)

    Godaddy hosting is not sending form mail with contact form 7 or any other plugin. Someone on the forum was told by godaddy to insert .....relay-hosting.secureserver.net into contact form 7...where exactly in contact form 7 would you insert?

    My guess is this issue has something to do with the CNAME or MX records in the DNS settings. The MX records should point to your domain (or at the very least, the mail server GoDaddy has set up for you to use).

    even i have the same issue with contact form 7 but for a temporary fix i used "Fast Secure Contact Form" it takes about 10mins to deliver the email but at least works on godaddy.

    A lot of issues are due to security features on godaddy's servers. This link is a great way to get CF7 working on wordpress, http://angstrey.com/index.php/2009/04/22/how-to-send-e-mail-with-wordpress-from-godaddy-windows-hosting/. If you want email to be forwarded from a goddady email then you will have to go to your mange email in hosting and set the cc to the email, or emails you want to have forwarded.

    another great article is from godaddy itself, http://community.godaddy.com/help/article/510?locale=en&ci=46061. This will allow you to be able to use gmail or msn.

    Both of these work, however, it is important to note that the latter does take time to get to your email.

    If you want to use the latter one and you do not have the PHP files let me know and I will post them on my site.

    I've got 3 websites using CF7 on Godaddy hosting and I haven't had any problems. I recommend contacting Godaddy support since they are very helpful most of the time and can help fix it faster than taking shots at it yourself.

    It "should" work as-is though.

    Godaddy was very help full when I first had this problem a few months ago. http://community.godaddy.com/help/article/510?locale=en&ci=46061 is what they recommended for use with WordPress if a contact-from plugin was not working properly.
